I'd be amazed if it was...

It may be a copyright issue. I give the movie 3 stars, even though it rates about 2 1/2.

Not an earth shattering movie, but it does show the then 32 year old Ringo Starr as he was.

Some great music with a so-so script.

Maybe it will reappear - maybe not.

... who wasn't there. Wish I could write a review, but need to be able to see the movie first. Does no one know this problem exists?

I saw this in Los Angeles when it came out, I think it was double-billed with "A Clockwork Orange". The acid generation was in full swing, which I was too young to understand most of it. Society was so strange in those days compared to today - so this was the normal at the time.

It isn't all that great but it's pretty obvious where Airplane got a lot of its gags and I can't claim that we're any better now than we were then. In fact we're probably a lot worse when it comes to human rights. The Vietnamese War atrocities are referenced a lot here. Not really all that different from the war in Iraq.

It's worth it just to see Raquel Welch whipping her slaves at the oars, but there are others who have fun as well. The cameos are the best parts of this film.
